Ichiro's last day of training for the year was likely Saturday (12/19).  Incidentally, it seems there was a ban on photos and and interview during the times he was holding practice.


Junichi Tazawa attended a fan event at LaLaPort Yokohama on Saturday.  About 300 fans showed up for the event.


Ryota Igarashi was back in Arizona on the 18th to re-start his training.  He spent about 4 hours working out (he held a session in the morning and in the afternoon).

Igarashi told reporters that he feels much better now that he knows a) where he'll be playing, and b) in what role he'll likely be used in.
